Good morning ~
Today is my second craft ~
Garland for the Christmas tree. I saw this on Pinterest, and thought this would look so nice on our tree.
I have been wanting to put garland on our tree, but it had to be different.
So here it is ~
The products you will need are:
Red craft paint ~ I used Martha Stewart
Ribbon ~ I used cream burlap
Stencil ~ I used Merry Christmas here is the website
Stencil brush also Martha Stewart
Piece of cardboard or thick paper for under the ribbon ~ this is so you do not get the paint on your surface. The paint will bleed through the burlap.
How I made the garland.
Found the ribbon which is very fine burlap at Michael’s ~ It had the edges frayed already. This will saved a bit of time.
Placed the stencil in the center of the ribbon and taped both ends to the burlap ~this way the stencil does not move.
I started at the end of the ribbon placed the stencil down and painted ~ I then spaced 4″ between each “Merry Christmas”
Let it dry and rolled it back onto the spool it came on.
This entire process took about 45 minutes.
I am so happy with the way this turned out.
I will be posting my Christmas Home Tour after Thanksgiving.
Enjoy your day today.
